Wonderful Day(s)!!

Hello all!

So the past two days have been both wonderful and incredibly productive for me. Allow me to express why:
- I got a 73% on my Sociology midterm exam, and an 83% on my Russian midterm exam.

- I reconnected with my faith!!! 8D

Also, today, I was feeling so darned happy. This is what happened today.
I woke up late and nearly missed my bus, but was still in a great mood. I improvised, took a different route, and got to school in time for my class.

We watched a wonderful film today in my Film class called 'Harlan County USA' which is a documentary from the 1970s about mine-workers in Kentucky getting a union. It's really inspiring to say the least. I just really enjoyed it, and felt empowered watching them struggle through so much hardship and persevere - it made me feel like I could, too.

Still in a happy mood, I made an unscheduled stop at Em's house and had a nice chat with her Mum, and invited Em out for dinner, on me. We went for Vietnamese food and it was DELICIOUS. I had curried tofu with bamboo and onions, and rice. She had orange chicken. We both had coconut bubble tea sherbets, and mine had RAINBOW JELLY!!! 8D I left a really nice tip.

From there, I went to my queer youth group, and met up with my friend there, and we had a great discussion of gender and the history of trans/genderqueer-ism. Really interesting!

After this, I went to coffee with some youth group people, and had a great time.

Then, I gave 6$ to a really polite, really nice homeless man, who was so thankful and moved by it (he'd been hoping for like, 2$ at most.) I told him to take care and God bless, and he said the same, and we parted ways happily. I hope he finds somewhere warm and safe to stay tonight. <3 He was such a nice guy.

And then, I caught a bus, and said thank you to the driver, and caught another bus after and said thanks and goodnight to him. I never have the balls to talk to drivers, so this was big for me.

I AM SO PRODUCTIVE, AND SO PROUD OF MYSELF, AND I OWE IT ALL TO GOD'S KINDNESS AND LOVE FOR ME. I'm actually so happy right now. <3 <3 <3 Overwhelmed, a bit, but happy.

God bless you all!!

I'm glad to see you're feeling better! Nice job on your marks, and that's so wonderful of you to give the money to the homeless guy. What a lovely experience. *hugs!*

Yeah, I'm really thankful. :)
Also, yay for helping the homeless!! I know so many people who refuse to give them money, since they think it'll just go to feeding an addiction, but the fact is, if you aren't near anything where you could buy them food or coffee or something, then money is better than nothing. Plus, I'm a real sucker for polite homeless people. The fact that they stay so polite when living in such a harsh environment, with such social stigma, is really powerful, in my opinion.
Thanks for the comment!! ^_^
